Overview

Featuring The area's only complete wax collection of American Presidents and their first ladies as well as a beautiful gift shop. The Hall of Presidents is located across the street from the Gettysburg Tour Center and next to the main entrance of the National Cemetery. It is incredible to be able to see what our Presidents really looked like and to hear the words attributed to them as if the words came from the very lips of the figures themselves.The Hall of First Ladies present authentic 1/3 size reproductions of the First Ladies in their inaugural gowns.

This was the one place my son really wanted to visit while we were here. We went through and was NOT disappointed. I loved how life like the presidents and the first ladies looked. Very glad we came!

If you like wax figures, and enjoy Presidential history, and value old-time museums ... This is a unique relic of bygone days. There's no flashy technology ... You push a button by the entrance of each room to start a recording (parts of which sound...More

Excellent stop for history buffs. Lots of information about our former presidents and first ladies. Cool wax statues but not really geared for smaller children who will get bored quickly.

Took a tour and got the best pictures of a Union soldier walking through shelves and a small boy standing next to our tour guide.

Let me first say that is you are looking for anything similar to Disney's hall of presidents this is not the same thing. While this tour is very informative the lack of movement from the wax statues and the quick recordings about each of them...More

In order, was figures and they have a recording about each as you go. I found it very interesting. You go at your own pace.

Gave just enough highlights of each President and then your own walk-thru of the wives. It was interesting and we liked it. I would recommend it. Depending on how much time you take with your own pace looking at the wives, it's a little over...More

I wanted to love this. I loved the idea. I enjoyed the trip through time. But while I can't really judge a wax portrayal of James K. Polk, I sure as heck can tell that the Presidents from my lifetime were inaccurate. Really inaccurate. Like...More
